    10 years now in OH for CCW, and no issues.

    OTOH, we are not as screwed up as Chicago.

    The nature of the OP highlights this exactly.

    Are you suggesting that assholes didn't pull guns on people before the CCW law passed?

    40 years of concealed carry in this country and all the dire predictions of a return to the wild wild west and...nah...not so much. For the MOST part, CCW holders are not and never will be the problem. For the most part.

    Absolutely. then, put a sign on the people who flunk reading "yahoo." That way, we could tell at a glance and give the yahoos a wide berth.

    Again...considering the ****storm you have in Chicago shouldnt you be more invested in resolving the 500+ murders annually you have there? The perpetrators arent too hard to find. Since...you know...you care so much about gun violence.

    There are morons in every societal group.

    I have seen a lot less in the CCW group, as most are well aware of their responsibilities of carrying a gun.

    I always enjoy anger and judgement that is rooted in blind ignorance.

    Because blind ignorance describes your position so well....
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    Right...its "blind ignorance" to suggest that rather than be concerned over the possibility that maybe somehow possibly perchance sorta who knows but MAYBE the law abiding citizens of Chicago are so ****ed up that unlike every other city and state in the country for the last 40 years where CCW has been made legal that CCW holders have a proven history of responsible behavior far and above the average citizenry and that INSTEAD you should focus on the known perpetrators that are killing an average of 500 a year and committing thousands more violent acts.
